Jerusalem (PTI): Describing Iran as a "danger" to world peace, Israeli President Shimon Peres has asked India not to remain "neutral" to Iran's "aggressive attempt" to become a forceful hegemony in the region. "Iran is a great danger....They have emerged as a danger to the rest of the world and they have mobilised the world against them, not just us," Peres told PTI in an interview here. On India's proximity to Iran, the 89-year-old Israeli leader said that he does not know "what are exactly the Indian considerations in that case because India has her own problems with nuclear capacities", which are not "simple". Describing India as a land historically based on values and Gandhi as a prophet who preached non-violence, the Nobel laureate argued that India cannot stay neutral towards Iran which was threatening the "existence" of other people.
